Powerful Performance         Now – April 21

Broadway Theatre

It’s a view of homelessness from the people who face it everyday. Home Is A Beautiful Word is a documentary play written by Saskatoon’s own Joel Bernbaum. It is the result of over 500 interviews he conducted in Victoria B.C. and it’s meant to be a reality check into the issue that faces every Canadian city. The performance was met with rave reviews when it debuted in 2014 and now in this revival the performance team hopes it will get the discussion going again about homelessness and what we can do to fight it. There will be post show audience discussions every night and special point of view panel discussions with our community leaders tonight, Sunday (April 15) and Thursday (April 19). Tickets are $28.
